    Hi,
    You can use either M.2 SATA SSD or NVMe SSD, both are compatible in your model. M+B keyed(M.2 SATA) and M keyed(NVMe SSD) can be used.

    Hi,
    Yes, it's a  M.2 NVMe SSD, so in theory it should work but I have not used this SSD, it's better to buy from retailers who have a easy returns policy, if the drive doesn't work you can return or swap for another brand.

    Hi,
    Download and install HWiNFO64 free program, run it, expand Bus, expand PCI Bus, highlight all PCI Express ports one by one and check their maximum link width in the right pane, if any of them match 2x or 4x, you may install a NVMe SSD, please read this thread for more information:https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/497241/acer-aspire-e5-575-52jf-m-2-nvme-support/p1

  • You need to check all the ports, mainly the Express Root port 9.

    Hi,
    Sorry for the late response, yes you can install a M.2 NVMe SSD but you are not going to see the difference in speeds between a M.2 NVMe SSD and a M.2 NVMe SSD in normal day to day work, if you transfer large files often you may benefit by installing a NVMe SSD, NVMe SSD is faster in transferring large files than a SATA SSD, apart from that there's little between them. You may find NVMe speeds look better than SATA only in benchmark.
    Most of the laptops are limitted to 2lanes for PCIe, so you will get half the speed advertised by the manufacturers(NVMe).
    These are the comparison between two types, it's a rough idea.
    M.2 SATA SSD:

    NVMe SSD:

    Is this one computable with PCIe

    hi,
    Is this the same for Acer Aspire E14 (E5-476G-38QZ) ?

    Hi,
    You have to follow the instructions in the posts above and find out the value of Maximum Link width for each PCI Express Root Port.
